    What do the different home types mean?

    Airbnb listings are categorized into the following home types:

    • Entire place: Guests have the whole place to themselves. This usually includes a bedroom, a bathroom, and a kitchen. Hosts should note in the description if they'll be on the property (ex: "Host occupies first floor of the home")
    • Private room: Guests have their own private room for sleeping. Other areas could be shared.
    • Shared room: Guests sleep in a bedroom or a common area that could be shared with others.

    Pick the choice that best describes your place so guests know what to expect. As a host, you're responsible for accurately describing your listing, by both selecting the appropriate category and providing further details of the property in the description.
